Hello..

I have a routine job which is to rename a bulk of files and which is simple but damn boring.. Please help if anyone can..
The file names are as follows..
*****000.png, *****001.png, ...... which goes upto *****015.png.
And each of the set contains around 5 files with *****000 uptp ****015 as file name.
Now the task is I need to replace the ****000 part to *****001, *****001 to *****002, *****002 to *****003 and so on until *****015 to *****016.

Total I have around 16* 5 = 80 files to be replaced every day..

Please help..!!!

You need to post a few REAL file names.

Each on it's own line.

Thank You.. M2!!

The file names are like this

ws_240510_b_000.png,
ws_240510_c_000.png,
ws_240510_m_000.png,
ws_240510_y_000.png,

are to be renamed to


ws_240510_b_001.png,
ws_240510_c_001.png,
ws_240510_m_001.png,
ws_240510_y_001.png,


The source files which were with the names

ws_240510_b_001.png,
ws_240510_c_001.png,
ws_240510_m_001.png,
ws_240510_y_001.png,

has to be renamed to

ws_240510_b_002.png,
ws_240510_c_002.png,
ws_240510_m_002.png,
ws_240510_y_002.png,

and like wise

.................
.................
.................

upto..

ws_240510_b_015.png,
ws_240510_c_015.png,
ws_240510_m_015.png,
ws_240510_y_015.png,

rename to

ws_240510_b_016.png,
ws_240510_c_016.png,
ws_240510_m_016.png,
ws_240510_y_016.png,


In short, my source folder has files with names which end with 000 thru 015 ie ******000 to *******015. My destination folder should have files with names which ends with 001 thru 016. ie ********001 to ********016.

All the source files are being generated to a particular folder. My target files can be in the same folder or in a new folder(to avoid name conflict) ..

I believe its clear..

Hope you can get back to me with a solution asap..
